Rodong Sinmun on Japan's allegation of "north Korea's threat"

PYONGYANG, JANUARY 29 (KCNA) -- RODONG SINMUN TODAY VIEWS THE JAPANESE REACTIONARIES' ALLEGATION OF "NORTH KOREA'S THREAT" AS A LIE. THEIR ALLEGATION IS SOMETHING ADAPTED IN JAPANESE WAY FROM THE SOUTH KOREAN PUPPETS' OUTCRIES OVER "THREAT FROM NORTH KOREA", THE DAILY SAYS, AND CONTINUES: THE DEFENCE AGENCY OF JAPAN, IN THE BOOK "EXPLANATION FOR POLITICIANS" PUBLISHED IN APRIL LAST YEAR, DIVIDED THE SITUATION SURROUNDING JAPAN INTO FIVE STAGES AND ELABORATED "MILITARY ACTION" AGAINST THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF KOREA IN EACH STAGE IN 34 ARTICLES. THE FACT INDICATES THAT THE JAPANESE REACTIONARIES HAVE MADE MILITARY SETBACK TO KOREA A FAIT ACCOMPLI AND A STATE POLICY. IT IS MADE CLEAR IN THE APPENDED CHART OF THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT'S NEW "NATIONAL DEFENCE PROGRAM OUTLINES" THAT ARMED FORCES WILL BE INCREASED IN KYUSHU AND OTHER AREAS NEAR THE KOREAN PENINSULA, THOUGH THOSE WILL BE REDUCED TO SOME EXTENT IN OTHER AREAS OF THE COUNTRY. IN LINE WITH THE APPENDED CHART, ARMED FORCES HAVE BEEN REINFORCED IN JAPAN'S WESTERN AREAS FACING THE KOREAN PENINSULA. MILITARY DRILLS FOR AGGRESSION OF KOREA HAVE BEEN STAGED BY JAPAN UNILATERALLY OR JOINTLY WITH U.S. FORCES. THE KOREAN PENINSULA IS THE ONLY TARGET IN ASIA OF JAPAN'S MILITARY ADVENTURE. JAPAN'S KOREA POLICY HAS TAKEN A STEP FORWARD FROM ANTAGONISM TO HOSTILITIES, FROM "DEFENCE" TO REINVASION. THE "UNSINKABLE CARRIER" WHICH HAS ALREADY RAISED ANCHOR IS HEADING FOR THE KOREAN PENINSULA. SUCH AN ACT IS REALLY A GRAVE THREAT. WE MAKE IT CLEAR AGAIN THAT A THREAT DOES NOT GO TO JAPAN BUT COMES TO OUR COUNTRY FROM JAPAN. THE ALLEGATION OF "NORTH KOREA'S THREAT" IS ONLY A PRETEXT FOR REINVADING KOREA.
